Perfect Freeflow 2.0 5
Perform a perfect combo including all of Batman's combat moves (any play mode)

Really the only skill-oriented achievement. You must unlock and perform all the moves at Batman's disposal in one unbroken combo. This can be done anywhere that you fight goons. It is highly recommended that you unlock Special Combo Boost to decrease the requirement for Special Combos from x8 to x5 and Critical Strikes to get a higher combo easier.


The exact moves required are:

Basic moves
  • Evade (,)
  • Strike ()
  • Counter ()
  • Stun ()
  • Ultra Stun (,,)
  • Aerial Attack (,,+ forward)
Combos
  • Special Combo Multi Ground Takedown (+) - must have at least 1 enemy dazed on the ground before doing this or it wont count
  • Special Combo Disarm and Destroy (+) - Can be done against people who are holding any object such as a knife or sledge hammer
  • Special Combo Bat Swarm (+)
  • Special Combo Takedown (+)
Finishers
  • Ground Pound (+) - Used to finish off an enemy when they are dazed on the ground
  • Beat Down Finisher (, repeatedly)
The easiest level seems to be the "Survival of the Fittest" Combat challenge. There are just enough enemies to perform all the required moves in all of the last three rounds so you have a few shots at it without needing to restart.

Bronze Revenge 10
Obtain 24 medals on the original Arkham City ranked maps (as Batman)

See "Gold Revenge".

Silver Revenge 20
Obtain 48 medals on the original Arkham City ranked maps (as Batman)

See "Gold Revenge".

Gold Revenge 40
Obtain all 72 medals on the original Arkham City ranked maps (as Batman)

Perform well enough to unlock the Gold medal on all 24 Arkham City ranked maps as Batman. To unlock these maps, you will have to collect Riddler trophies during the main game. See "Genius" for more info on those.

There are twelve Combat challenges which are fairly easy. Focus more on keeping your flow going than throwing in a lot of variation. You're more likely to make a mistake trying to throw an explosive gel down than just using attacks, dodges and counters. When the titans show up, jump over them to confuse them for a few seconds. Against either of the twins, continually beat them and use Bat Swarm whenever possible to keep the other goons off you. You'll get your combo extremely high by the time they die and rack up the points.

The twelve Predator challenges are slightly more difficult. You'll have to perform three specific tasks in each map, all during the same attempt. Press at any time to view their requirements. Not too many tips I can give for these, the videos in the link below do better justice than words can.

Note: Because he was playing on Easy difficulty, PowerPyx had the ability to recharge his smoke pellets. If you're playing on a harder difficulty, you'll need to slightly alter your play style compared to what he does in some situations.

Campaign Bronze 10
Obtain 24 medals on the original Arkham City campaigns (as Batman)

See "Campaign Gold".

Campaign Silver 20
Obtain 72 medals on the original Arkham City campaigns (as Batman)

See "Campaign Gold".

Campaign Gold 40
Obtain all 108 medals on the original Arkham City campaigns (as Batman)

Perform well enough to unlock the Gold medal on all 12 Arkham City campaigns as Batman. To unlock these maps, you will have to collect Riddler trophies during the main game. See "Genius" for more info on those.

The campaigns are a combination of previous Combat and Predator challenges. They come in sets of three, with three medals to earn in each section for nine total in each. You have the ability to retry up to three times if you fail to get all three medals on a section, because you'll need all nine medals in one run for each.

You are also given a set of mutators that will alter the gameplay which must all be used at some point during the campaign. You can use up to three in a single section so if you feel confident about a section you can use a bunch to get them out of the way early, making a harder one down the line a little easier.
